Street Machine Magazine's Drag Challenge 2018: Final Day.
Watchma Bovine Dirt Drags……Moons ago I had an unexpected phone call from Gary Salau. I had photographed his property a few years prior. Gaz mentioned he had seen some of my work on the H.A.M.B. and wanted to know if I was interested in hanging out and taking a few photos of some Dirt Drags. No way would i miss this rare opportunity. Fast forward 2yrs to the last Dirt Jam I attended in 2016, and I now consider a lot of these guys incredibly great friends.
The Watchma Bovine Dirt Jam isn't a public event. It's a no BS good time amongst a group of close friends who i was lucky enough to document running a-muck on an old crop duster air strip.
Sometimes it is very easy to take beautiful places for granted by just living too close.
Good to see ya, good to see ya!
When stance is everything..Outtakes of Grant Maclean's custom HT Chev, photographed for Hop Up Magazine Vol3 Issue 2. Big thanks to Haylee and Grant for the amazing hospitality in Australia's Beef Capital. Shout out to Pat Moore for the driving assistance!
Walking out of ADL Airport and being greeted by a Pontiac Roadster, GC's, Beers and a slab box sign with your name scribbled on it was one of the best starts to any trip I've been on.
The plan: West Beach Skatepark Friday. Party. Grinders CC Charity Show Saturday. Party. Hang out Sunday. Didn't sound shit.
The Grinders CC raised a hefty donation from the auction of bitchin art work, which was generously donated by artists all over Straya. Humbled to have been invited along and to have been apart of this event at the end of 2016.
One hell of a weekend. One for the books. You know the trips i'm talking about, yeah, you know. Massive shout out to those guys and girls. What a trip, man!
The idea of the Oak Forest Campout came about from a group of like minded people that felt they only ever got together at bigger events. Dates were thrown around, a location was found and good times were had.
Oak Forest Campout.
Harcourt, Victoria. Winter 2017
The Boogaloo Invitation 2018. Needs no introduction. Thee best campout HotRod, Custom and Bike show in Aus. Special guests this year included the likes of Nick Simich of FARTCO and Piero from Mad Fabricators. Get a bloody yabby up ya.
My morning started off with our Car Club organizing a casual, no BS cruise from Melbourne Moonshine, and taking the scenic route through country Vic. Big ups to the Moonshine crew, sterling effort.
After chatting with a few people after the dust had settled Mid day Sunday, there was a pattern of "this is the best one yet" and "i couldn't walk five minutes without running into someone i knew". This just goes to show how much work Tesh and Des put into the event to create an atmosphere like none other. Good times, man. Keep the PMA.
